Somebody At Quimby's On Archer Prewitt Signing June 20 (PR)

Archer Prewitt SIGNS WORK ON PAPER At Quimby's, Saturday, June 20th, 7pm

Multi-talented Chicago artist Archer Prewitt (The Sea and Cake, The Coctails) signs his new book, Work On Paper!

Not many people will know that the author of crazy and perverted comic, Sof' Boy, is the same man who drew the beautiful and delicate nymph-like girl from the artists' own music album, Wilderness. But look carefully and you will notice that the most intricately drawn fine lines and dots are mutual features of much of his work; the same organic, subtle, sophisticated and tender sensibility shine through in all of Archer Prewitt's creations and never ceases to charm us.

This book collects 32 of selected works from a group of minimal drawings he has been working on for almost 20 years.

Foreword by Jim Harris (Courtauld Institute of Art, London).
